Shepreth Spitfires Football Club was formed in 2015 with a simple aim: to provide boys and girls in South Cambridgeshire the opportunity to play ability based football in a supportive, structured, challenging and fun way. We are based in Shepreth, a wonderful village but one historically without a single sports club to its name. Our catchment area extends from Shepreth to South Cambridge, including Royston, Harston, Haslingfield and Trumpington.
Since 2015, the club has expanded to support a wide range of ages. We have introduced local children as young as four to football through our Tots sessions, but also run teams up to U16. Last season, our 19 Squadron U9s team reached the quarter finals of South Cambridgeshire Cup and moved rapidly up through three league divisions. In addition, we have helped with bag packing in Royston Tesco and supported a local boy to achieve his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. If you would like to get involved with The Spitfires, we would love to hear from you.
Due to the continuing success the club is experiencing, we are recruiting players across all age groups as we look to increase the number of our teams. We believe in smaller team sizes so all players get plenty of game time. If you are interested in joining us, please get in touch for more information.
We are delighted to announce two substantial sponsorships. A generous donation from Mick George has allowed us to buy four metal goals for our U7–U10s. We have also recently received another very generous donation from some local villagers in Shepreth. This will help us to buy and maintain training equipment for the coming season, but most importantly it will help us keep subs low and ensure Shepreth Spitfires remain accessible to everyone in our community. Many thanks to Mick and Shepreth residents, and to all of you have sponsored the club. However large or small your support, we truly appreciate it!
All players across the age groups will be assigned to teams appropriate for their ability. This is key to player development and enjoyment. Players move up and down between development and established teams twice a year in the close seasons [Christmas and summer], but we constantly assess players, provide feedback and discuss progress with players, parents and the coach. Next on our to-do list is to establish personal and team objectives to support their development. We also offer weekly goal-keeping with our Level 2 goalkeeping coach. All age groups below are for the new 2021/2022 season.
We have two U7 teams [School Year 2] – 19 and 66 Squadrons – 19 Squadron is our more established and 66 Squadron is our development team. Training is on Tuesdays 5:30–6:30pm.
